 2010-05-13, 19:31 Link #2061 roriconfan Banned   Join Date: Jul 2009 Location: Thessaloniki - Greece Ok then, by that logic, if each Espada is numbered by his power and 11 was at 30%, then we can assume that if Hitsugaya can be used as reference ... #10 = 40% #09 = 50% #08 = 60% #07 = 70% #06 = 80% #05 = 90% #04 = 100% #03 = 110% (Hallibell) So, how does Hitsugaya rank next to the other captains?

I really don't think it's that simple.

You're just assumuing each espada is 10% stronger than the previous. We don't know if this is true or not.

sorry, but asspulling a perfectly incremental power scale isn't logic and goes well beyond the intended scope of this thread.

the earlier relative percentages were actually given to us.

yes he did. he also said that the numbers 11+ weren't ordered by power. both of which make roricon's numbers even more unfounded.

Right, I was just trying to make sense of his chart.

 2010-05-14, 21:09 Link #2067 X207 Gamyūsa     Join Date: Jun 2006 Location: Montreal today i saw a 1/8 Teliel Tu pvc figurine at an anime shop nearby. they were selling it for \$99, is it a good price for the figure? i would like to get a Neliel Tu Ordervaschank item (preferably adult form) but i feel that i can get more for that \$99 if i get some 1/60 or a master grade gundam model. are there any Neliel Tu items not on the list in the link? http://myfigurecollection.net/search...alue=neliel+tu

Anyone who would spend \$99 on a Bleach figurine needs to get their head examined. Most figurines I've seen in Japan range from \$10-\$30. Look on ebay. You'll probably have better luck finding what you want for a price that isn't 3x inflated. __________________ (This magnificent sig. is courtesy of the talented Kuroda )

thank you for confirming what i expected langus. that shop is decent, the manga is \$1-2 more than chapters or indigo and gundam models range from \$32 (1/144) to 48 (1/100). its just really the bigger figurines that are seriousy overpriced. i did check ebay, the DX is going for \$68 and the keychain is \$13 CAD. the DX looks a bit overpriced but the keychain doesnt seen that bad in price. most of the Neliel 1/8 figures are \$80 minimum. ive seen another shop selling a Nel (child) chibi for \$20, or for that matter 2cm tall chibis for 20 a pop. i'll keep searching around for a good price but i suspect the cheapest will be in japan given you leave out the price for a plane ticket to tokyo. i wouldnt mind buying her zampaktou, not the wooden blade but an dulled metal blade but that probably wont come out anytime soon.

 2010-05-15, 00:17 Link #2070 JustRob Senior Member     Join Date: Oct 2008 Hi guys I have a question. When Ulquiorra and Yammy first come to the human world, Yammy uses his soul-suction technique to suck out a lot of people's souls. Yammy makes a comment that the souls taste digusting, and Ulquiorra confirms that this is because these souls do not have reiatsu. However, seconds later they see that Arisawa Tatsuki has survived the technique because she has some reiatsu. My question: Why does Yammy (or the Arrancar in general) have this technique? I mean, Ulquiorra implies that souls with reiatsu are tasty, but the technique doesn't work on those with reiatsu. Doesn't it kinda contradict itself? __________________ The betrayal you can see is trivial. What is truly fearsome, is the betrayal you don't see.

he didn't say that they had no reitsu (at least not in the versions i found). he called them 'dilluted' (manga), 'thin' (anime sub), or 'weak' (anime dub).

hollows eat normal human souls all the time and the ability simply lets them eat more at a time. seems this ability is more for feasting rather than gourmet dining. if they want the good food then they gotta work for it a little.

Ate menos with small reiatsu? I though menos couldn't go to Hueco Mundo if they are not experienced and thus not weak.

\$13? Jesus... Well just keep in mind that keychains here range from 100-300 yen, meaning \$1.00-\$3.00. See if you can't find a seller already in Japan who can get it to you for a more reasonable price. Unfortunately I haven't seen the Nel key rings at my local manga shop otherwise I'd offer to pick one up for you. I'll keep an eye out though.

thank you langus, i know that many anime items get marked up once they leave japan. montreal doesnt really have many locations dedicated to anime items. just how much japanese would one need to know to go visit japan if they dont know any friends over there?

 2010-05-15, 10:36 Link #2077 Langus Optimus Prime     Join Date: Feb 2008 Location: Japan/Canada Age: 31 Very little. A surprisingly amount can be accomplished, particularly in large cities like Tokyo, with pointing. A friend of mine recently visited Kyoto with zero Japanese and got around just fine. Most merch stores around have everything out on display so you just pick up what you want or point to it and ask to see it (sumimasen, kore o mitte kudasai) <- pretty sure that's it. "Excuse me, can I see this please?" Forgive my horrendous Japanese abilities if that's not the case. Anyway, I can definitely sympathize with the merch drought in Canada. Damn frustrating at times, really. Best of luck mate. __________________ (This magnificent sig. is courtesy of the talented Kuroda )

thanks, i just need to find time to spare for a trip in the future. i guess learning more than the commonly used basic phrases should be fine. there are some cases where merchandise is easy to get but unfortunately they dont make it easy .

Season 13+14 = filler arc, it's up to you if they are worth watching or not
